NEW! Now in conversation with author Leslie K. Barry: Cantor Riselle Bain
Based on a true story of forbidden love and unholy heroism, Newark Minutemen is set against the backdrop of an America ripped apart by the Great Depression and on the brink of war. It’s 1938 in Newark, New Jersey, and a shadow Hitler-Nazi party called the German-American Bund led by an American “Fuhrer” threatens to swallow democracy. In this dangerous time of star-spangled fascism, a romance forms between a Jewish boxer, Yael and the daughter of the enemy, Krista. Soon after, Yael is recruited by the mob and FBI to help bring down the Bund.
